If both masses are increased by 60% and the distance between them is halved, by what percent will the force of attraction increase?

  • Algebra II -

    just plug in the new values:

    F = GMm/d^2

    new force

    F' = G(1.6m)(1.6M)/(d/2)^2
    = GmM/d^2 * 1.6^2 * 2^2
    = 10.24F

    I assume you can convert that to a percentage
